The Garrotxa is one of the best places to practice the cycling tourism in Catalonia. Olot is a key point, as it is an obligatory crossing point to link the Via Verda del Ferro with the Via Verda del Carrilet. The link can be made through two different routes: the first goes from Sant Joan de les Abadesses to Olot passing by the Coll de Santigosa and the Coll de Coubet, taking advantage of the old Gi-521 road; and the second passes through Santa Llúcia de Puigmal and the Vall de Bianya. Olot is the recommended starting point for the Via Verda del Carrilet, as much of the route to Girona is downhill.
To band, to Garrotxa there are several signposted routes called The secrets of the Greenways than, from the Greenway, they allow you to discover the territory by bike : The Bianya Valley, pairalies and crops; Sant Feliu de Pallerols, a volcano in the woods; The Dams, the cradle of Verntallat - the remences revolts; Olot, beeches between volcanoes; Olot, the art of landscapes and Les Planes d’Hostoles, spaces and domains - the remences revolts.
Besalú, for its part, has the Green Ring, a large promenade along the river Fluvià suitable for cycling.
